Question Bronze Weatherstripping on Vintage Windows

What is the best way to apply bronze weather stripping to double hung wood window sashes? I know how to install metal weather stripping to the sides, but what about where the top/bottom sashes meet? What about top of the upper sash and the bottom of the lower? I'm looking for instructions with photos.

Thank you, but these instructions are for a different type of weatherstripping. I need instructions for rolled bronze stripping.

Found the type of weatherstripping I need. It is called "Meeting Rail" and I found a store that carries it. Meeting Rail Weatherstrip However my window is 46 inches wide, and this only comes in 36 inches wide strips, so I need to find a different source.
